"I'm okay with a Doctor Strange who can do kind of whatever I need him to in a story. I just need him to have a good reason for doing it and I need there to be consequences for what he does, but I don't need to catalog his powers and spells down to the last detail." - Mark Waid

Westfield: What about the character of Stephen Strange appeals to you?

Mark Waid: That he’s a thinker. A learner. A man who's dedicated his life to personal betterment, only to have had to start again at the bottom more than once and rebuild himself.

-- Westfield comics blog interview.

Here's the thing: Look, we always say "magic has a price" and we're always looking for a way to limit Doctor Strange's powers and so forth and so on. But I gotta tell ya, that doesn't always fly with me. What makes him limited is not interesting to me. It's what he does with his powers that makes him interesting to me. I understand putting some limitations on him, but I don't think comics are about characters who have to follow rules. They're about flying, right? They're about doing impossible things. I think the more rules and regulations we put on our characters... That's just my own personal opinion, but it doesn't wash for me. -- Mark Waid

Waid finds that “perpetual student” aspect to be one of Strange’s most compelling traits. “There’s not a day in his adult life that he hasn’t spent studying, be it medical texts or magical scrolls,” Waid remarked. -- CBR interview

'The team is far, far more aware of their role in the Marvel Universe not just as mentors, but as students. The Champions aren't the "farm team" anymore - their peers are the Avengers.' - Mark Waid

"I have a really frustrating habit of having to read basically everything. I'm not one of these guys who can come on and take over a book and just read the previous arc or read the first issue. I need to feel very familiar with everything that's gone before. So if you're taking over for characters that have 30-plus year histories, you have a lot of homework. But the bottom-line is, if you do that, you start to see the sort of recurring themes and motifs of a character." -- Nick Spencer

"I’ve got a real soft spot for Quasar. I was a big fan of the original Mark Gruenwald run as a kid, and my entire Cap run so far has been pretty much a love song to Gruenwald’s run on that character." -- Nick Spencer

'A story that I know influenced this and had a big impact on me when I was younger was the end of the John Walker saga in “Captain America”; when the Skull had his consciousness put in a body that looked like Steve Rogers. As a kid I had a visceral reaction to that. The idea of that was terrifying. So it stuck with me. It’s one of my all-time favorite Cap stories.' - Nick Spencer
